Meteorological Monographs and Special Collections

Meteorological Monographs and Special Collections The purpose of this editorial is to introduce the new approach the American Meteorological Society (AMS) has taken with Meteorological Monographs and to distinguish them from the special collections of journal articles. Moreover, whereas Meteorological Monographs were previously published like traditional hardbound books, henceforth they will be entirely open access and online, in addition to being available in print. Goals of Meteorological Monographs The AMS Meteorological Monographs series will consist of collections of review papers on topics in which rapid developments are currently being made, as well as collections of papers summarizing state-of-the-art knowledge (e.g., from recent special topical meetings). In general, monographs are envisioned as a collection of papers that provide a thorough background on a general topic area and thus are expected to have comprehensive reference lists so that someone new to the topic could be guided to the appropriate sources of original literature. Monograph papers may contain some new findings and previously unpublished material, but papers that only describe findings of recent research projects or field studies are more appropriate for special collections published in an AMS journal. Usually, monograph papers are written by invited authors.

Abstract

The purpose of this editorial is to introduce the new approach the American Meteorological Society (AMS) has taken with Meteorological Monographs and to distinguish them from the special collections of journal articles. Moreover, whereas Meteorological Monographs were previously published like traditional hardbound books, henceforth they will be entirely open access and online, in addition to being available in print. Goals of Meteorological Monographs The AMS Meteorological Monographs series will consist of collections of review papers on topics in which rapid developments are currently being made, as well as collections of papers summarizing state-of-the-art knowledge (e.g., from recent special topical meetings). In general, monographs are envisioned as a collection of papers that provide a thorough background on a general topic area and thus are expected to have comprehensive reference lists so that someone new to the topic could be guided to the appropriate sources of original literature. Monograph papers may contain some new findings and previously unpublished material, but papers that only describe findings of recent research projects or field studies are more appropriate for special collections published in an AMS journal. Usually, monograph papers are written by invited authors. Appropriate material for monographs includes collections of review articles
